About half of all current jobs will become obsolete in just 15 years, according to one of China’s leading experts in artificial intelligence (AI).
Kai-Fu Lee, a writer, venture capitalist and technology executive who has over 30 years’ experience in AI (robot tech) will appear on CBS 60 Minutes today to announce his research findings that half of current jobs will disappear within 15 years due to new technology.
He will warn those job sectors most at risk so they can start retraining for the new world of robots and other AI.
Lee says to avert future crisis, education systems have to adapt now to prepare younger generations for the new situation. We should remember Joseph’s warning to Pharaoh about 7 fat years followed by 7 lean years in Egypt that came to pass. We should also remember the Millennium Bug prediction that never came to pass!
The bottom line is: China’s leading AI expert has some important research findings that simply cannot be swept under the carpet.
Lee says not all jobs are at risk, though.
